Unification News for October 1998

What about the Future?

Jon Wason, La Crescent, Minnesota

I read with interest the column by Paul Carlson concerning a serious topic we Unificationists should address. The topic was: What happens after the demise of the founder and leader? Carlson’s article was well written and well researched. I found it educational and interesting. We can learn from the mistakes of others. He describes the woes of other groups when the founder passed away and the followers splintered. I am grateful that the writer has brought up these points for us to consider.

What will happen in the future? Will we separate into factions? Will the family be split as sisters and brothers become enemies? My sincere hope is that now we can prepare for that day which is surely coming. We can make a smooth transition.
